News on The 700 Club: January 27, 2017

As seen on "The 700 Club," January 27: The new Reagan and Thatcher? Trump welcomes British PM Theresa May; From youth rallies to clothing expos: March for Life more than a march, and more. Read Transcript


Well, welcome to "The 700 Club."

Today, President Trump will sit down

with British Prime Minister Theresa

May in his first official meeting

with a foreign head of state.

They'll talk about a range of things from terrorism

to a potential trade deal.

Many are calling them the new Reagan and Thatcher.

But there's one topic on which they may not see eye to eye.

CBN News White House correspondent Jennifer Wishon

has that story.

JENNIFER WISHON: President Donald Trump and British Prime

Minister Theresa May, will they become the next Reagan

and Thatcher?

May told reporters on her plane ride

across the pond that sometimes opposites attract.

Prime Minister May is the first foreign leader

President Trump will receive at the White House.

It's symbolic of the close relationship that endures

between the US and Britain.

But there are many serious issues to discuss.

And perhaps nearest and dearest for Trump is trade.

The president has spoken eagerly about making a free trade

deal with Britain.

And May is anxious to find an economic partner

outside of the European Union as she

orchestrates Britain's Brexit.

A new trade deal between Britain and America

must work for both sides and serve

both of our national interests.

It must help to grow our respective economies

and to provide the high-skilled, high-paid jobs of the future.

JENNIFER WISHON: The daughter of a vicar who

now leads Britain's Conservative Party,

May worked hard to get the invitation

to be Trump's first foreign visitor.

Thursday she visited with congressional Republicans

holding a retreat in Philadelphia,

where she played up a strong relationship with the US

and American conservatives.

The value of liberty, the dignity of work,

the principles of nationhood, family, economic prudence,

patriotism, and putting power in the hands of the people.

JENNIFER WISHON: She referenced President Ronald Reagan

often and even played off his famous quote,

"trust but verify," to explain her approach to Russia

as "engage but beware."

Besides Russia, Trump and May will discuss joint efforts

to defeat ISIS, the war in Syria, and NATO.

But another meeting with a foreign leader

is off after the president of Mexico

canceled his visit following a dispute

with President Trump over a wall on the US border with Mexico.

For now, President Trump is set to sign more executive orders

today, including a temporary ban on refugees entering

the US and a halt on immigration from countries with strong ties

to terrorism.

Jennifer Wishon, CBN News, the White House.

Also happening today, President Trump

will have a sit-down interview with CBN News'

chief political correspondent David Brody.

They're going to talk about the Supreme

Court and some other topics.

And you can see the full White House interview Sunday night

at 11:00 PM eastern on ABC's Freeform cable channel.

It'll also air Monday on "The 700 Club."

Well, in other news, Vice President Mike Pence and White

House adviser Kellyanne Conway will speak to the annual March

for Life today.

Even before today's march, Washington

was filled with pro-life events.

Paul Strand has the story.

PAUL STRAND: Even before the March

for Life, many of the marchers marched over to the new Planned

Parenthood megacenter here in Washington

to protest outside its doors--

Last year, Planned Parenthood committed 323,999 abortions,

almost one out of every three abortions in America.

PAUL STRAND: --the main goal getting the federal government

to stop its taxpayer funding of this abortion provider

and give that money to medical centers that

don't abort babies.

Take that $0.5 billion that's being used to harm and to hurt,

and shift it to places that can help and heal.

PAUL STRAND: And a day before the march,

this protest wasn't all that was going on.

March for Life used to just be the March for Life.

But now there's all sorts of activities and events

that surround it.

There was a youth rally with young people pouring in droves

into a hotel ballroom.

This March for Life Expo featured pro-life clothing,

books, and even colleges.

Another activity on Capitol Hill,

mothers who almost aborted or gave up their babies

go to lawmakers' offices to advocate for pro-life pregnancy

centers with Heartbeat International.

This year, Nikki Pinkley was telling

how she was a just-graduated high school

student desperate over a crisis pregnancy.

But a pro-life pregnancy center helped talk her

into keeping the baby, who's now teenager Alexis.

I cannot imagine a life without my mom.

So, yeah, I'm glad.

I'm thankful for everything but especially my daughter Alexis,

who's just growing into a beautiful, smart, and talented

young lady.

PAUL STRAND: Back at that Planned Parenthood protest,

40 Days for Life President Shawn Carney

was reminding pro-life activists what's

really on the line when it comes to abortion.

It's the most brutal act in our nation and one that needs hope.

Nobody grows up wanting an abortion.

And when we're there, we can offer hope.

We can offer love.

And look at the reward for that.

It's a beautiful baby made in the image and likeness of God.

PAUL STRAND: Paul Strand, CBN News, Washington.

Well, it's definitely a new day in Washington.

And we'll see.

The Supreme Court nominee is going

to be where the real battle is going to happen.

And that will take some confirmation hearings

to confirm.

But we'll see.

It looks very hopeful.

We'll be back with more of "The 700 Club" after this.
